Great coffee, amazing looking cakes, unique shop items, wonderful grounds and healthy looking plants. Really enjoyed our visit. Wonderful sunny day and beautiful gardens to relax and wander.

The homemade cake here is mouthwateringly good. The grounds are also lovely. Unfortunately won't be practical to visit again, as it is not at all dog friendly (unless guide dogs), which includes not even being allowed to sit with the dog on the lawn alongside the car park.

Three of us found this wonderful cafe, garden and garden center through a recommendation. We had a yummy lunch and then walked in the garden. It's nice that there is a garden center, where you can purchase plants that you'd admired on your walk. There is plenty of parking behind the street front private home. Such a charming find!

We visit Hopleys quite often. The gardens are stunning, and so Hopleys is worth visiting for this alone. They sell a good range of plants, though are highly priced and it can be difficult to find someone to serve you. The cafe is not worth it. I love that everything is homemade and they are allergy/intolerance concious. However, the bread... More

We were a little late but we sat down in lovely surroundings. Asked what we like to drink and also if we wanted something other than turkey for dinner. Two people opted for different options. When asked about WiFi services they were very helpful and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and even though was 20 of us it came... More

Unplanned visit as just passing and saw the sign. I had a tart with fresh salad which was very tasty. The variety in the salad was very impressive. Reasonable price and excellent friendly service. As an added bonus there is a attractive garden to view after a meal and a pleaseant garden nursery to view stocking some unique plants.

We are regular visitors here. We are from West Hertfordshire so there must be something that's worth the journey. The whole experience at Hopleys is first class. The plants on offer are very different to those found at other garden centres and a pleasure to walk round the gardens too and burn off some of those calories after eating some... More
